COVID-19 Information

We're excited to move forward with opening up the museum for in-person exploration. It has been a challenging time for many of us. We appreciate your patience as we navigate reopening for in-person guests while protecting our staff and guests, especially you. We are intentional and gradual in our approach to our COVID-19 health and safety protocols. Based on recent trends and regulatory guidance, MDHAC will be making adjustments to these measures, which may continue to change at any time without notice.


We encourage people to get vaccinated.

  • Face coverings may have an integrated transparent plastic panel to aid in viewing the wearer’s mouth. These face coverings should also be a fabric face-covering featuring a solid plastic panel containing no openings that are attached to the fabric on all sides using tight knit stitching

  • Stay 6 feet away from others.

  • Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or with hand sanitizer especially after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
